/m5084 imo do not see anything incorrect with that. but sounds kind of stupid as the person would just cash the money order with a window clerk.

 Route adjustments are being done in the office where I work, I was told one week ago by the union rep and mgmt rep that my route would not be walked or adjusted because the data is still good and my route was adjusted with the latest data (it was cut). Yesterday they say the route is under by 1 hr and they will be adding to it. the route has had growth since the last adjustment, overtime is daily.

Can I request a route inspection while they are doing these adjustments to prove the route is over,
are there any other options that I can use ?

Thanks NE 5076. I'll make the list and start from there. I'll present it to the branch president. Many thanks.

/m5074 There wasn't a single two seater vehicle (van, for example or training LLV) in your installation? Your DLS carrier could have been driven to her route and then resupplied by neighboring carriers throughout the day. We've even had, in a smaller office, the PM come out and drive the carrier from one park point to the next throughout the day. It can definitly be done, has been done. The carrier could also have set up her route every day, cased on any vacant routes, done red book maintenance, cleaned the building (we haven't had janitorial for some time)washed LLVs that were in the lot (inside or out, depending on your weather)- {they are supposed to be cleaned every three months}, updated the fire evacuation plans, etc etc. There are lots of tasks that would not impinge on the contractual rights of others.
I suggest you counter with "Every reasonable effort will be made to reassign such employee to non-driving duties in the employee’s craft or in other crafts" from Art 29 and list all the available work during the time frame of the suspension. "It is incumbent on mgt to find the work, but the Union, had they been asked, could have gladly provided the following examples of work availabe to the Grievant at XYZ Station". Mgt didn't even try.

Only 11 questions? Are you sure you don't have any more?

I got a Step B decision back for an article 29 issue and the B Team basically said the Union lost the case because "the Union has not provided sufficient evidence that any additional work existed for the Grievant to perform following her driving privilege suspension." My problem with this is, Management is obligated or required to find the work, how is the Union supposed to know of any evidence when they aren't involved in the work finding process? What if work existed in the clerk craft or with the mail handlers? If it's managements job to find the work then how is the Union responsible to know of any evidence that such work existed anywhere? How does the Union document, factually, the evidence of existing work? If we argued she could have answered the phone, how do you make the evidentiary case? And how do you document that? Just say she could have answered the Phone cause it kept ringing off the hook? I think an industrial study would've needed to be conducted to determine that. A step like what the B Team is saying conflicts with article 29 and the MOU's (Arbitrator Snow) in my opinion. Can this decision be appealed and overturned? Can this Grievant get her lost wages now? Is it up to the NBA or an Arbitrator? Or is she cooked? Thanks in advance for your help.

Ed harpsstruoe /m5070 - yes, if the carrier from whom they are taking the OT is OTDL.

Go here: http://www.nalc.org/workplace-issues/contr.../body/JCAM-2014.pdf

Find Article 8, start reading.
